The cultural and folkloric association of Glossa organizes for the 4th time their traditional dance festival on 14, 15, 16 and 17th of July 2016. Dance groups from all over Greece will be attending. Skopelosnews will announce the venues closer to the event.

Almost there

Skopelosnews drove on the road this afternoon to make absolutely sure that it is passable and turned the car around to drive back on it again! Yes the road to Raches, Anania, Pirgos etc. etc. but more the road to houses of the Somer family, the Patsis family, The Andreou family etc. etc. is open again. It have been very difficult months for them. All these months they have driven a totally different road which took so much longer. Nobody really knew when they would start on the road, the anxiety of how it was going to be fixed, the actual fixing, the storms in between… Anyway the cement is down and all the road needs now is asphalt which will be put down a little bit later. Anybody seen the tar truck on the island?

More greens

From a reader:” We are always being told to eat more greens. This joined me on my plate in a restaurant in Skopelos town tonight”

We are family

we are familyStella Mather (in yellow top at left) and husband Phil recently decided to get their extended family together to commemorate a departed family member and decided to converge en masse on Skopelos for a family holiday. They also decided to converge for a family meal at Ampeliki earlier this week, where they passed around someone’s titfer to raise funds for the Skopelos health centre. They managed to raise over €250 to buy supplies for the centre, and asked us to publicize their effort in the hope of inspiring others to do the same. Congrats all round, and if anyone needs a reminder of our favourite family-related Sister Sledge hit it’s here.
